We had some good events this past month. Picnic in the Park and History Road saw us joined by two groups from Sasketchewan. Other than the weather at History Road is was a good time. The other events were well attended and great fun. July is more of the same with the Ukrainian Historic Village run starting us off on July 1st.

Hope your wheels are rolling as we hit the road a running from the get go. May looks to be busy. We start off with three items on one Weekend. Red Deer Swap meet May 4th, we’re leaving from Route 99 Diner after lunch and heading to Red Deer. If you want to come and look for a gem or that special piece of car join us. It’s a good time.
Saturday sees the 780 Tuner event taking place at United Cycle and the Antique Mall over on Gateway Blvd. Starts at 7p.m. and goes until 9:30. Geoff says get there early as it fills up and there are a usually a lot of prizes. Proceeds go to local charitable organizations.
Need to recover from Season Opener, then join the club for English Breakfast. We’re going out to the Footloose Caboose for a buffet breakfast/brunch. Good food, good friends, nice cars, hopefully good weather. Cost is $15 dollars a person. Check out the events page as the rendezvous local has changed, the run there will be the run, and this is an RSVP on this event. Don’t want to run out of food and leave someone hungry. See you ya there.. there and there.
Weather person has thrown a curve and we’ll be back into cool weather for the St. Patrick’s Day BBQ. Though we’ve had the BBQ at -20 so -3 shouldn’t be too hard on us. Just dress for success and we’ll still have a good time.
ST. PATRICK’S DAY BARBECUE

Park is just south of the Groat Bridge, off University Ave We’ll have burgers and beans and coffee, possibly with some supplement.

Don’t want coffee bring a beverage, remember though that this is a City Park. Chippies and snacks are good to share too.
Alec has got some great ideas lined up for the upcoming planning meeting. There is rumour of Pizza as well to bring back an old tradtion. We have some classic runs to bring forth as well as the hope for some new runs to get the interest up this year. Talk of a few long runs this upcoming season with Van Dusen being mentioned as well as Portland All British and Saskatchewan’s Brit by the Bus.
The Local runs were popular last summer and we hope to see a few more of them. If you haven’t been then the Ukrainian Village show is worth taking in and they feed you too. Some past runs won’t be repeated unless we can get new organizers and it doesn’t take much work to do a run in many cases.
One variation is that the Saskatchewan All British Car Club has expressed interest in coming out to Edmonton for the Picnic in the Park put on by the Alberta All British Motoring Society and then History Road. Hope we can step up and be as good a host club as they have been when we go to Saskatoon. As usual things won’t happen without people stepping forward to host an event. There’s lot’s of support available should you decided to take on a run. See you there.
Russ has landed an interesting speaker for February’s meeting. Suncor’s Peter Harteveld, Peter has done a lot of research ensuring that his presentation on Motor Oil is relevant to our classic cars. With the upcoming Quaker State Classic oil and other brands out there it will no doubt be interesting to find out what Mr. Hareveld has found out. Russ is pulling a lot of strings to get these experts to come speak to us so lets get out and have a good meeting. Join us at the Royal Alberta Museum meeting room (to the left of the main entrance) at 7:00 p.m. Wednesday February 15th.
Speaking of good meetings the planning meeting is scheduled for the March 21st Meeting night. Alec Cherwenuk is already working on a list of things to do and places to go. If you have any ideas or wants in this area please feel free to contact him. He’s listed onsite in the Executive section or in the newsletter. Be very helpful meeting night if you have as much info on the event that you can. The St. Paddy’s Day BBQ takes place before the meeting but if it turns out to be a go then we should have it in the newsletter and of course here online and via email. Usually a good event as we touch base with people after a long winter. And though warm it’s still been long. So watch this spot.
